Verdict

Cloudingstar's challenge quickly petered out after making a bad mistake at Bangor last time. He's 5lb higher than when winning at Ffos Las earlier. Rudemeister has struggled in a couple of starts so far this year but Mr Syntax is getting closer and should figure off his current mark. MAJORICA KING ran well for third behind Dolatulo in better company at Stratford last month. A repeat should be good enough to land this and Oliver Sherwood's chaser gets the nod. Work Boy scored here in March but has been well beaten since and the runner-up Whiskey Ridge re-opposes on better terms today.
